The Big Two-Eight

Officially one number larger than how old I am...today marks week TWENTY-EIGHT!!  I've been blogging a lot about baby recently, so I am not sure if this post will be all that long or informative.  I did realize that one of the sites that tells you what fruit or veggie your baby is goes in months...not weeks.  So I may have that whole thing royally messed up.  We shall see.  I like the weekly updates better, it fits my personality.  Also, this is my first pregnancy and I'd like to compare when we decide we are ready for #2 (oh...by the way, Ashley, I had a dream last night that you told me you were pregnant with #2!!).  There are several other reasons, one being that I just want to.  The. End.  Lol.

I found zoom on my phone this morning on accident! So exciting!
Just to keep things the same, I thought I'd post the above pic too!

I am a little bummed that I don't have any real camera pictures b/c all of these will print grainy, but you live and you learn.  I will take as many as I can now...and hopefully get the angle down right.  It'd be nice to get full body shots, but since we live alone these days, there aren't many folk that can help us out in that area :)  Next time!  

So, Baby B is 2.5 pounds and roughly 16 inches head to foot.  The baby has started regular sleep patterns including REM, which means the little bean is dreaming.  Maybe that's why my dreams and been a little nutty these past few days.  One web site says the baby is moving closer to the exit- meaning the head is down much lower than ever before.  When I asked the doctor, he explained that's hard to judge b/c of other factors (ie. how much amniotic fluid there is, the placement of the placenta, how big baby is, how you are carrying).  Interesting that SO much goes into the creation of this little being.  All the articles tell me to find a child birthing class..wahh...I don't want to do this alone.  MJB, get your buns home!  One site says Baby B is the size of a head of cauliflower and the other still says an eggplant.  However, the "What to Expect When You're Expecting" book says that I am starting my 7 month of pregnancy for all you monthly people out there.  What you really need to know is that now doctors do not go by months...strictly weeks.  And that's b/c there are 40 weeks of pregnancy, which equals 10 months.  Instead of confusing the public they decided to just squeeze 40 weeks into 9 months and make every pregnant woman confused :)  Lol.  It has boggled my mind the whole entire pregnancy.  So, please refrain from asking me how many months along I am.  Ha!

  1. You need to ask Stef about some of her dreams. They are absolutely hysterical. Especially the one about her running for Governor of northern Mexico...against Usher.

    Your belly looks MUCH bigger than at Thanksgiving. Can't wait to see it in a few days!!!!!!
